Hi, when i connect a speaker to any of the 5 terminals i get no sound whatsoever. the unit turns on and all other functions of the receiver work properly. i have the instruction manual and i have gone through all of the troubleshooting it has to offer. i am fairly savy at electronics and receivers, and i don't believe it is a settings or adjustment issue. is there possibly an internal fuse or protection relay for all of the speaker terminals that might have failed? any help would be greatly appreciated!

An F61 error occurs on a Panasonic home theater system when the speaker cable wire connections are wrong. This situation is likely to happen if you just purchased your unit or moved the system and try to reconnect the speakers again. Polarity is key in a successful setup. The positive and negative ends of the cable wires must match the input of the main unit. Retrace your speaker wire connections to clear error F61.
Attach the speaker labels to the speaker wires for easier identification, if they're not already labeled. At minimum, labels for front left (L), front right (R) and center speakers should be included in the packaging contents that came with your system.
Verify that the white ends of each speaker cable are connected to the corresponding "+" positive inputs for each speaker.
Verify that the blue ends of each speaker cable are connected to the corresponding "-" negative inputs for each speaker.
Push the plastic ends of the speaker wires on each speaker to verify that each is locked into place.
Connect the remaining end of the "Front (L)" speaker wire to the white terminal/connector on the main unit.
Connect the remaining end of the "Front (R)" speaker wire to the red terminal/connector on the main unit.
Connect the remaining end of the "Center" speaker wire to the green terminal/connector on the main unit.
Connect the remaining end of the "Subwoofer" wire to the purple terminal/connector on the main unit.
Connect the remaining ends of the "Surround (R)" and "Surround (L)" speakers to the wireless system.
Hi, what you want to do is just connect the speaker wires from the head unit straight across to the pre-amp inputs of the amp. If you have a sub, also connect the pre-amp outputs of the head unit to the 2 sub inputs of the amp. Connect the blue wire of the head unit to the turn-on terminal of the amp and connect power wires to both units. May I ask what speakers are you using?
check if the volume control is set at minimal or the sound is set at mute... if its under warranty just bring that to the store or to the authorized service center. if not try this simple steps... (1) unplug the unit from the wall socket (2) place the unit on a flat surface. make sure not to touch the screen. (3) unscrew to remove the protected cover (4) look at the speaker. check if its properly connected. check if the speaker is not busted or open by testing the speaker. (5) if you have an ohm meter just place the test prod on the speaker terminal. it should read 8 ohms or what ohms the speaker is specified. if you don't have a ohm meter try to use a 1.5 volts double AA or triple AAA type battery.but first remove the connection of the speaker so that you will not damage the unit.. using a battery place the positive side to one side of the speaker terminal. use a piece of wire to connect the other side of the battery to the one side of the speaker. once you place, you should hear a crackling sounds... if not the speaker is the problem. (6) replace the speaker. and connect it back from the terminal. (7) place the protected cover back to its original position. (7) turn the unit on and enjoy.... ty
This is almost always due to a bad speaker connection in the speaker output terminals on the back of the receiver unit, or the speaker input terminals on the back of the speakers. Check your wire connections at these points and fix as necessary. If the plastic wire insulation is pushed inside the terminals, it will prevent the wire from making contact in the terminal.
If you are not getting sound from any of the 4 channels, I'd suspect that either the amp is not getting an input signal or the amp itself is faulty.
Here's the "no sound" troubleshooting step-by-step procedure from the JL manual:
1) Check the input signal using an AC voltmeter to measure the voltage from the source unit while an appropriate test tone is played through the source unit (disconnect the input cables from the amplifier prior to this test). The frequency used should be in the range that is to be amplified by the amplifier (example; 50 Hz for a sub bass application or 1 kHz for a full range / high-pass application). A steady, sufficient voltage (between 200mV and 5.O-volts) should be present at the output of the signal cables.
2) Check the output of the amplifier. Using the procedure explained in the previous check item (after plugging the input cables back into the amplifier) test for output at the speaker outputs of the amplifier. Unless you enjoy test tones at high levels, it is a good idea to remove the Speaker Connector Plugs from the amplifier while doing this. Turn the volume up approximately half way. 5V or more should be measured at the speaker outputs. This output level can vary greatly between amplifiers but it should not be in the millivolt range with the source unit at half volume. If you are reading sufficient voltage, check your speaker connections as explained below.
3) Check to ensure that the speaker wires are making a good connection with the metal inside the Speaker Connector Plugs. The speaker wire connectors are designed to accept up to 12 AWG wire. Make sure to strip the wire to allow for a sufficient connection with the metal inside each terminal.
Might be a loose connection problem. A contact cleaner is handy in cleaning the terminals. Try to swap the speaker connections if you don't have a multi-tester to check the resistance of the speakers. If the right front speaker will sound after connecting it to the left front speaker output, then it is a speaker coil problem. If not, might be an amplifier channel problem.
